The Raf Simons x adidas Checkerboard Adilette slides put a premium touch on the classic 3 stripes slides from 1972.

As far as classic slides go, its all about the Adilette. Making somewhat of a resurgence in recent years, socks or no socks, the Adilette’s history stems all the way back to the 1960s. First introduced for the German football team during the 60s as a shower shoe, the Adilette was then ‘officially’ released in 1972. The popular 3 stripes styles is now put under the creative direction of Belgian designer, Raf Simons. Simons has been putting his stamp on 3 stripes footwear since 2013, with this latest installment of Summer slides in typical Raf fashion.
